This post is specifically for my sister. Since Cricket has been married she has lived away from everyone until recently. Now she and I live within a two hour drive from each other. To say that we are loving this is an understatement. The first time I got to visit her home I was a little envious at how uncluttered her house was. I guess this comes from moving so much. The less clutter you have, the less time and effort it takes to pack/unpack it. When I came back from that first visit I have tried to unclutter our house. It just doesn't work around here for some reason-until today. This morning I woke up early and started getting busy cleaning my neglected house. I did so much baking last week that the housework was put on the backburner. I don't do laundry (unless absolutely necessary) on Sundays, so the laundry piles up between Saturday and Monday. I had finished one load of laundry and started the second load when I heard an awful noise. Yes. My washing machine was dying. To make a long story short, Poppy helped me out tremendously and brought the machine back to life. In order for Poppy to perform the surgery I had to clean out the laundry room. This was a chore that I had been wanting to do, but had been putting it off. This was the time. I now have a very cleaned out laundry room that even Cricket would be proud to have in her home!!!
